The Teammates: A Portrait of a Friendship - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 0786888679

[SR: 152566], Paperback, [EAN: 9780786888672], Hachette Books, Hachette Books, Book, [PU: Hachette Books], Hachette Books, As baseball legend Ted Williams lay dying in Florida, his old Boston Red Sox teammates Johnny Pesky and Dom DiMaggio piled into a car and drove 1,300 miles to see their friend. Another member of the close-knit group, Bobby Doerr, remained in Oregon to tend to his wife who had suffered a stroke. Besides providing a poignant travelogue of the elderly Pesky and DiMaggio's trip, David Halberstam's The Teammates goes back in time to profile the men as young ballplayers. Although it is enlightening to learn about Doerr, Pesky, and DiMaggio, the leader of the group and star of the book is Williams. Halberstam portrays the notoriously moody and difficult Williams as a complex man: driven by a rough childhood and a fiercely competitive nature to become perhaps the greatest pure hitter of all time while also being a magnetic personality and loving friend. While there is nothing exceptionally unusual about old men who have stayed friends (plenty of people stay friends, after all), baseball gives this particular relationship a unique makeup. Unlike most friendships, that of Williams, Doerr, Pesky, and DiMaggio was viewed all summer long by hooting, hollering Red Sox fans. As such, their bond is forged both of individual accomplishment, win-loss records, numerous road trips, and, since they played for the Red Sox, annual doses of disappointment. Halberstam, author of Summer of '49 and October 1964 is the ideal writer to tell two equally intriguing stories, both rich in America's pastime. Although he occasionally drops himself into the narrative, one expects that of Halberstam and gladly accepts it in exchange for the highly readable exposition infused with poetic majesty that has become his trademark. --John Moe, 935472, Williams, Ted, 935464, ( W ), 935192, People, A-Z, 934986, Biographies & Memoirs, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 935488, Baseball, 935486, Sports & Outdoors, 934986, Biographies & Memoirs, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 959474, History, 959468, Baseball, 959466, Sports & Outdoors, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 959766, Baseball, 959764, Biographies, 959466, Sports & Outdoors, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books

The Teammates: A Portrait of Friendship - gebrauchtes Buch

2001

ISBN: 9780786888672

ID: 3104395

T"he Teammates is the profoundly moving story of four great baseball players who have made the passage from sports icons--when they were young and seemingly indestructible--to men dealing with the vulnerabilities of growing older. At the core of the book is the friendship of these four very different men--Boston Red Sox teammates Bobby Doerr, Dominic DiMaggio, Johnny Pesky, and Ted Williams--who remained close for more than sixty years. The book starts out in early October 2001, when Dominic DiMaggio and Johnny Pesky begin a 1,300-mile trip by car to visit their beloved friend Ted Williams, whom they know is dying. Bobby Doerr, the fourth member of this close group--"my guys," Williams used to call them--is unable to join them. Doerr is back in Oregon tending to his wife of sixty-three years, who has suffered a second stroke. Acclaimed author David Halberstam has given us a book--filled with historical details and first-hand accounts--about baseball and about something more, the richness of friendship. The Teammates: A Portrait of Friendship Halberstam, David, Hyperion Books
